Paper Abstract

The process of holographic recording in liquid photopolymer compositions (PPC), which contain a photopolymerizable component, an initiating system and a neutral component, is described in the frame of the phase separation of the original mixture performance. The value of amplitude of the refractive index modulation of holographic gratings in PPC has been studied in dependence on the thermodynamical compatibility of system polymer-neutral component, kinetic parameters of the polymerization process and the diffusion mass-transport, supported the formation of holograms. The kinetic of holographic recording in photopolymer compositions is considered in the terms of Avrami-Erofeev equation. It has been shown for composition with polymerization-diffusion mechanism of recording that it is possible to realize the conditions, at which the kinetic of recording and consequently, light-sensitivity of a material and efficiency of recording will be determined by the parameters of the polymerization process.
